    2000 images were made in the 1950s of boston/cambridge/somerville/medford.
    some of these photographs are published in the sunday globe
    and the topic of "then and now" articles.

    the whole collection is at the MIT Museum and now here for us to look.

    Not quite the same league, more like Atget meets the Bechers :D

    By that I mean the Bechers record approach, still valuable though.
